This is a book that really WILL teach you how to spin.
Janet wrote it because she was fed up seeing books about how to spin that glossed over the actual nuts and bolts of how to do it. So she carefully analysed the process and the book contains over 140 photos, showing the process step by step.
It is written the way Janet teaches and has easy to follow contents pages, eg you can look up a problem you may be having, like 'the yarn won't wind onto the bobbin' and go straight to that page.
The book covers both spindles and spinning wheels and takes you to the point where you are spinning exotic or trickier fibres such as silk, alpaca or angora.
The book itself and postage.
- A 'high top' hand spindle or a contemporary spinning wheel suitable for beginners, such as an Ashford.
- Some pre-prepared wool fibre that is medium, such as British wool tops, rather than fine like merino. This can be bought from a main spinning supplier.

The book arrived very quickly, Tuesday! It is now by my bed so that I can read it properly after I have finished a novel by Andrew Doerr - All the light we cannot see! I have dipped into spinning but it needs to be read properly, as I have already said. I must also find my spindle upstairs in Caroline's Corner (my Craft Room).
Response from Create With Fibre:Thanks for your review Caroline and I do hope you have fun with the book. Remember that we have a Facebook group where you can ask questions and there are free videos there to watch too.
